My view at 6:30am

Early morning is one of my favorite times with Toby. He's super mellow and talk-y, and we "chitchat" while he plays in his crib. When Toby was first born, I was so anxious that I was doing everything right (he was teeny), but these days I'm thankfully settling in, feeling a bit more confident and just enjoying his sweet company. Oh, Toby, I adore you and your Jack Nicholson eyebrows!

He is so precious! I just found a lot of video of my daughter when she was this age and all the memories of her baby hood came rushing. I remember the first week I was a nervous wreak i was always checking if she was breathing. The videos are priceless i almost forgot how her baby voice was like.

Adorable! My son is around the same age as Noah and super mellow in the mornings. He wakes himself up babbling and we solve a lot of problems together! I pretend that he likes to comment on the stories on Morning Edition. Don't you love how much more confident you feel these days?

I love when you post pics of little Toby. We were pregnant at the same time, and due at the same time, but my little guy came 10 days past his due date! Anyway, it's fun reading your posts because I can relate to so much of what you say about motherhood.

He is a cutie pie for sure. Those eyebrows kill!

Regina said...

I remember those days of wonder and the fun baby chat. We have been celebrated our oldest turning 12 this week - and my youngest just turned 6 - I know you probably hear over and over -but keep cherishing those baby chats because they go before you know it and your talking piano lessons, spelling words and fairy princesses. :)
